Wed 24 Apr 2019 - Thu 25 Apr 2019

The networking meeting Research Data Management Reloaded: Open Data and the Future of Research Data Management in the Social Sciences and Humanities targets research data management officers of universities and research institutes in German-speaking countries. It aims to bring together such representatives for a systematic knowledge exchange. This involves a review of Open Data requirements and related infrastructure, e.g. in terms of best practice guidelines, data repositories or data registration (persistent identifiers), as well as of resources to assist researchers in processing Open Data, such as the FOSTER Toolkit or the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide. Based on this, participants will discuss recommendations for future action and networking in order to promote research and research data of their research institutes.
